Founded in 1857, and with a current base of more than 5,000 members, the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIA New York) is the largest, oldest, and most influential chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

AIA New York is dedicated to three goals: design excellence, public outreach, and professional development. The organization achieves these goals in part through the work of its 27 program committees. Through discussion, advocacy, policy making and development, event and exhibition planning, and other endeavors, the program committees are the foundation from which the Chapter positions itself in the field of architecture.

In 2003, AIA New York opened a public resource space with its charitable affiliate, the Center for Architecture. The Center for Architecture (CFA) is New York City’s premier public space for exhibitions, discussion, and professional exchange on architecture, design, and the built environment. With multiple galleries, a lecture hall, library and conference rooms, the CFA serves as a vital place where the public and design professionals come together.
